LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 1.17 37 Dr. Ajith Nair Relieves Chronic Pain with HD Spinal Cord Stimulation High Density spinal cord stimulation is a breakthrough option for those who have tried various, and often invasive, treatments, including surgery, yet still suffer from chronic pain. Spinal cord stimulation is produced from an implantable device that delivers small amounts of electricity to block pain signals for patients with chronic pain. Instead of feeling pain, the patient feels pain relief. The spinal cord stimulator can be programmed specific to the patient's pain profile and High Density stimulation is a breakthrough way this pain relief is achieved. Using High Density (HD) programming, patients have the option to receive targeted therapy via their spinal cord stimulator to effectively reduce their chronic pain. More and more chronic pain sufferers are feeling relief with HD spinal cord stimulation. If you suffer from chronic pain, call Kentuckiana Pain Specialists at 502.995.4004 or visit www. kentuckianapainspecialists.com. 1301 Herr Lane, Suite 125 Louisville, Ky 40222 (502) 426-2295 medicalweightlossatthevillage.net Dr. Shawn McCarty Medical Weight Loss at the Village treats being overweight as a disease - not a character flaw. Caring, compassionate care by an expert physician. Drs. Vince Lusco and John Olsofka meeting broader spectrum of patients considering weight loss procedures with non-invasive Orbera Intragastric Balloon Over a decade ago, Dr. Vince Lusco and Dr. John Olsofka developed the bariatric program at Sts. Mary and Elizabeth Hospital. The two surgeons began introducing patients to a healthier life through the Lap Band System. Patients that were morbidly obese could now free themselves from medications, enjoy family events and engage in activities that were once deemed impossible. The highest quality outcomes and their remarkable aftercare program for over 4,000 Lap Band procedures set Drs. Lusco and Olsofka apart. The surgeons were recognized nationally and were selected as one of the first programs in the country to place the Orbera Intragastric Balloon. This allowed the surgeons to support a different patient. The Orbera Intragastric Balloon gives patients seeking to lose thirty to sixty pounds in a six month period a safe and less invasive option to weight loss. Drs. Lusco and Olsofka can now devote their expertise to a broader spectrum of patients considering weight loss procedures. The surgeons focus on both lower body mass indexes as well as morbidly obese patients. Dr. Lusco and Dr. Olsofka are dedicated to helping you transform your life.
